Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. The feature was created because The Broke and Bookish are particularly fond of lists (as are we!). Each week a new Top Ten list topic is given and bloggers can participate.
Today’s Topic: Author Duos We’d LOVE to See Write a Book Together
These authors kick butt. If they wrote a book together, we might just faint.
1. Matt de la Peña and Chris Crutcher
While neither of these authors sticks strictly to sports, they both have written incredible books that feature sports in them. I love how they never used sports as a crutch or the main aspect of a book. Instead, they value character and story first. I’ve seen them speak together!
2. A.S. King and Laurie Halse Anderson
These two women rock my world. I can’t imagine the story that would emerge if they worked together.
3. Ruta Sepetys and Patricia McCormick
Both of these authors teach me so much through their stories. I think they’d be an incredible pairing.
4. Kekla Magoon and Jacqueline Woodson
I read every book these two women write. They develop character in such a beautiful way. I am always recommending their books to other readers.
5. Oliver Jeffers, Drew Daywalt, and Jon Klassen
I know the first two authors came together to create a masterpiece series (The Day the Crayons Quit), but I’ve been thinking that adding Jon Klassen into the mix would make the world explode.
1. Kenneth Oppel and Patrick Ness
These two authors are so unique, and I cannot even imagine what they would come up with if they wrote a book together!
2. George O’Connor and Rick Riordan
These two gentleman are mythology geniuses, and I would love to see a fiction graphic novel that mixes mythology and fiction.
3. Laurie Halse Anderson and John Green
Two of the most brilliant contemporary authors writing together would be epic!
4. Deborah Wiles and Jim Murphy
Deborah Wiles writes some of the best historical fiction, and Jim Murphy writes some of the best literary nonfiction. I would love a book that was half fiction and half nonfiction combining their abilities.
5. Kate DiCamillo and Jennifer Holm
A co-written novel by Holm and DiCamillo would blow my mind!
Which authors would you love to see write a book together?
